The trio split up in 2005 to pursue solo projects
The stars of R&B group Destiny's Child have been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Lead singer Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams were reunited for the ceremony in Hollywood following the group's split last year.

"We started when we were 9 years old, and here we are getting a Hollywood star," said 24-year-old Knowles.

"Dreams come true. So thank you all so much for supporting us." The group's hits include Say My Name and Survivor.

"I want to thank you all for coming out here in this rain. We are humbled to be here," said Rowland, who founded the group with Knowles in Houston, Texas in 1991.

The group have sold more than 50 million CDs worldwide, including solo releases, according to their record company.

Knowles is currently starring in the new Pink Panther film, opposite Steve Martin and Kevin Kline.
